Why do I see different hits when I use BLAST from Ensembl, UCSC, and NCBI

BLAST can give various results when comparing resources depending on parameters used, and underlying sequence and repeat differences. For more details on BLAST in Ensembl Genomes can be found here. In addition to BLAST, we also offer another sequence search tool based on the ENA search.
